History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, in conjunction with nonprofit Island SPACE, will present “The Island Imprint: Legends, Locals and Landscapes of the Caribbean” from June 1 – 30 during National Caribbean-American Heritage Month. The fine art exhibition, to be showcased in the New River Inn (231 SW Second Avenue), features imaginative, colorful portraits and slice-of-life scenery from local award-winning artists. An opening welcome reception will be held on Wednesday, June 9, from 6 – 8 p.m., including an in-person and Facebook Live Q&A with the artists.

This is the third staging in a multiyear initiative celebrating Broward County’s Caribbean heritage. The exhibit will spotlight the works of several Jamaican artist-contributors including photographer and curator David I. Muir sharing a selection of photos from his "Santiago de Cuba" collection which recently placed in the Florida Magazine Association awards for Best Photography. Other artists include Charles "Mark Phi" Smart (philanthropic ARTivist) sharing pieces from his "Jamaica Heroes Modernized" collection, Mark Cameron (painter and photographer) showcasing selections from his “Reggae Icons” and Paul Blackwood (painter) lending landscapes from his general collection.

History Fort Lauderdale is proud to showcase a variety of annual multicultural exhibits highlighting African American, Caribbean and Latin artists sharing their views of history. Permanent exhibits include “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows guests to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale.
